Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools

Games for Learning: Why Games Are Effective Educational Tools | Education | Scoop.it

By Adam Coccari

 

I am a 4th and 6th grade teacher that has been utilizing games in my lessons and tutoring sessions for a few years now. If I had suggested just five years ago that video games could play a major part in classroom education, the majority of teachers and school administrators would have laughed at me. Now, there seems to be somewhat of a sea change happening in this field. Educators are starting to believe what many researchers and advocates have long known: Video games can be excellent teaching tools and an effective way for students to learn.

               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Brilliant selection of apps - I'm looking forward to trying more of them!

Considering how integrated technology has become in even basic courses, it seems pointless to resist lest one become outdated and useless as a teacher.
